Things are really moving along, the preparations are being made to lay the foundations!

Latest photos over from Geoff. The builders are preparing to lay the foundations, they have also put boards in place to hold the wet cement and these show where the internal walls will be so we are starting to be able to see what the downstairs room layout will look like.

Good to see Maurizio making sure everything is as it should be!

You can also see where there is a change of level in the house.

The next job is to put in place the steel rebar and then pour the concrete.
The external staircase and porticos will be added add a later stage.

Spoke to Geoff today.........

Lots of progress, the builders are well on the way to clearing the rocks away so that they can start digging the foundations.

Loads of stone has been saved to be re-used

And there's plenty of earth set aside that will be used when we are landscaping the gardens.

Hopefully by next week the builders will have dug the trenches and they will be putting down the foundations.
